bathroom designJust because you have a small space, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy big ideas with your home or office bathroom design.

While some of us have expansive master baths, most residential and commercial properties relegate this room to a less-than-luxurious corner of the construction plan. This is especially true for families living in older homes or businesses in historical buildings. We can help you create functional and aesthetic results with our big ideas for small baths.

Contrasting colors can help to make your small space seem larger. Design that takes advantage of light walls with dark cabinets will open up the space. The contrasting colors are pleasing to the eye and create the illusion of more space. You can add to this effect by installing ambient lighting or mirrored surfaces that eliminate shadows around fixtures, in corners, and even on the ceiling. Extra light can also help to reduce any shrinking effect dark cabinets may have.

Scale down the size of the amenities. Install pedestal sinks and low-flow toilets with smaller tanks to help make the most of the space that is available. You can also maximize square footage by removing extra cabinets or closets. If you’re wondering where to put all your towels after removing the closet, consider installing ladder-style racks. Some vanity sinks even have curved fronts to eliminate harsh angles and provide even more room.

Selective use of patterns as bright and bold accents will not overwhelm a small room when used with care. Bathroom design can be charming and quaint when hand towels, shower curtains, window fixtures, or other accents are rich in traditional or modern touches.

In the end, we encourage you to embrace the challenges of your small space and make the most of your bathroom design. You can have a fully functional room that is comfortable and beautiful even if it’s less than spacious.
